Later today, Gov. Perdue is scheduled to announce her proposals to reduce state government bureaucracy. Per the N&O:
Perdue scheduled an announcement at a Chatham County elementary school on Thursday to discuss how her administration will better work for citizens, businesses and community groups.
Joining Perdue will be representatives of the League of Municipalities, North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association and a nearby chapter of the YMCA.
The announcement is separate from her expected announcement next month to unveil her government reorganization plan.
I was scolded last week for confusing this announcement regarding trimming bureaucracy and her “government reorganization” plan by Perdue’s highly-paid propaganda minister humble public servant Pearse Edwards, the Governor’s senior communications and policy adviser.
Given the Governor’s office statements that they are holding off on their “government reorganization” plans until after the election so as to not “politicize” the plan, I asked Edwards in a personal email if we can therefore assume that Perdue does intend to politicize her proposals to trim bureaucracy by announcing it before the election. I didn’t receive a response.
Given her track record, I remain highly skeptical that anything of substance will be presented today. I hope to be proven wrong.
